Note Relating to Cather

In a 1902 Gazette article, Cather writes: "Miss Guiney has a singular power of adapting her meters to her subject, so that the mere melody of her verse often takes the color of the sentiment and interprets it as the accompaniment does the air of a Schubert song."

In the same article,Cather says of the first four lines of the last stanza of "Hylas:" "On a first reading one might say they recalled something of Keats' vividness, but of what a graver color and how infinitely more restrained!"
